November 1916
9th Birthday- I am twenty to-day. We have been on the construction of the light railway line all day, & this afternoon over 200 sets of rails & three trucks were brought up by the ammunition train. We have witnessed some fine air duels to-day & Fritz has been rather active with his aircraft One of his planes flew over us & about 3 miles behind the lines but was at great height. Our antiaircraft were shooting very badly & he got back in safety. We have been bombarding Fritz very heavy this afternoon but to-night Fritz sent some of his shells over our way & some were very close to our humpys.
